I need a headphone amp for my basement studio. I'm in two metal bands and I'm trying to move to electronic drums and headphones for all our instruments.

I saw this amp on both Guitar Center and Musician's Friend:

It's priced the same ($199) with free shipping from both.

The reviews seem good, but does anyone have any experience with this product?

I have their older HeadAmp four-output box. It's been a solid little box. Quiet with preamps that have a ton of gain so you can drive loud signals over long cable runs. I think I paid ~CAD$75 maybe 8 years ago now. Didn't come with any cans. It's one of those little boxes I have in the home studio that I don't think about, use all the time, and if it was gone I'd miss it very much.

I doubt the cans it's coming with are of great quality but, to me, that price seems pretty darn good.

That's what I was hoping for. Thanks, @Ian! – karlgrz Feb 9 '11 at 16:33
